Amber Mahaffey (@tatted_blondeee) of Amber's Chair, Myrtle Beach, SC, specializes in color correcting, high lift platinums and bright hair. When we saw this transformation we asked for more details.

Here she shares the HOW TO:

Step 1: Using Redken Flash Lift and 20 volume developer with Olaplex, apply heavy foil highlights throughout to break up newgrowth. Process with heat for 8 minutes, then room temperature for 10.

Step 2: Tone with Redken Shades EQ 9v and 9t with a splash of clear for 6 minutes. Lightly shampoo with Pravana Pure Light.

Step 3: Blow dry and section for color.  Prepare 4 formulas with Olaplex number 2 in each formula:

#1 Pravana clear 1 oz, 2 pea sized dots Pravana violet

#2 Pravana clear 1/4 oz 1oz silver pea size dot violet

#3 1oz Pravana silver and 1 in ribbon locked in blue

#4 Pravana silver by itself.

Step 4: Apply using a color melting technique, rotating colors from roots to end.

Step 5: Process 35 minutes at room temperature. Rinse with COLD water and condition only.
